Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
I wish to make a Freedom of Information request on the number of sick and disabled people who have taken their lives after failing their medical assessments and made to look for work. I also would like the figures of how many have committed suicide due to benefit sanctions.
I request the number of people who have lost their homes, committed suicide and are in arrears with social housing rent. Could you also let me know how much money the government receive from the bedroom tax and how much it is costing to run the scheme.
